Community/Public Service Parish Council and School Advisory at St. Cecilia Catholic School, Haysville, KS
All of my 8 children have attended school at Clearwater. I have lived her and owned a business in the community for over 20 yrs. I care about our town and I want what is best for our kids and their education. I also am very concerned about the direction of public schools that nationally seem to have lost their focus. I do not agree with CRT curriculum and I am also against forcing children to wear masks or to be vaccinated.
They have a large roll to play but it needs to be limited to their place to educate and to work with parents if they need additional services.
Civic involvement is crucial to raising good citizens. Providing many opportunities for children to see first-hand what government does and how they can be involved is paramount. I do not agree with the indoctrination of kids by telling them America is bad or racist. They should learn to love their country and want to do their part to make it a better place for everyone!
Keeping medical issues out of schools and leaving more control in the hands of the parents. Also, protecting them from further eroding our core values through Marxism and Communist tactics. We should strive for excellence, not mediocrity.
I am fine with it. I think competition only makes people better.
I think it would be fine to offer alternatives to public busing but not at the expense of those who need it.
